Our New Zealand Road Cycling holidays allow you to do some great bicycling, with tours ranging from 5 to 9 days. On some tours we follow the philosophy of "Cycle the Best and Drive the Rest," as there are days when it is not possible to cycle the whole route between lodgings. For these cycling tours your guide will adapt the daily schedule to allow strong riders to cover more ground. By using the support vehicle, more relaxed cyclists get to average from 50 – 70 kms plus (30 - 45 miles) daily. View our NZ road cycling tours ...

We also offer NZ cycle tours where strong riders can challenge themselves by cycling “inn to inn” each day. Apart from exiting the cities, it is possible to ride the whole route from start to finish. Daily distances range from from 80 - 120 kms plus(50 - 75 miles), but recreational cyclists can still enjoy these tours, as the support vehicle is used to transport riders to the best cycling sections. For details on tour categories please visit our Tour Gradings page. see our road cycling tours ...

Our New Zealand Mountain Biking tours are aimed at mid-range riders as well as bikers looking for a challenge and wanting to up-skill. Single track riding mixes with gravel roads and 4WD tracks to access rides. In many cases an opportunity exists to do more km's as a pre or post ride. Bikers should expect to ride 4-6 hours per day with opportunities for skills workshops during the trip. see our mountain biking tours...
